  1. Hi. I recently ran into a power jack problem for my compaq presario m2000. I did a search on replacements for the power jack and found a few...but how many units should i use? Also, is it possible for me to replace the power jack at home instead of putting it in the hands of a repairman?

    If you are skilled at disassembly, soldering, track repair (if needed), and re-assembly then its easy. If you don't have those skills then it would be better left to a professional who is.

    Yes, as Rik said... Sometimes just reflowing the solder connections is all thats needed, but you may have to completely remove the motherboard to do this
